“Remember Your Baptism”

This past Easter 2013 I once again had the privilege to officiate in the important life ritual of baptism for 2 infants (preemie twins) and one young man (Alex – 13). Their entire families, extended clan, friends, family, and the whole church watched on in this precious moment that is becoming our most celebrated service here @ Harvest Community Church. We had probably our biggest attendance ever, and it was very diverse as well, which made me deeply happy. The energy was good, and it continues, I can still feel it. We – the entire congregation – bask in the glow.

So I am deeply grateful to be involved in the interstices of life for this precious and growing community in Houston, and I can see the fruits of it growing year by year. Last year’s baptism was an awesome start (esp as I baptized my own kids then & there); this year it was even better, if I can say that, and each year seems to just hit it out the park. Awesome.

Enjoy the photos, more can be found here; thanx and be sure to give props and credit to our photographer (one of several), Fernando Gonzalez.
